The Catholic Church is the Biggest Financial Power on Earth

Have you ever wondered how wealthy the church really is? In his book, ‘The Vatican Billions’, writer and philosopher Avro Manhattan gives us a glimpse of the true financial worth of the catholic church:

The Vatican has large investments with the Rothschilds of Britain, France and America, with the Hambros Bank, with the Credit Suisse in London and Zurich. In the United States it has large investments with the Morgan Bank, the Chase-Manhattan Bank, the First National Bank of New York, the Bankers Trust Company, and others.

The Vatican has billions of shares in the most powerful international corporations such as Gulf Oil, Shell, General Motors, Bethlehem Steel, General Electric, International Business Machines, T.W.A., etc.” (...) 


“Some idea of the real estate and other forms of wealth controlled by the Catholic church may be gathered by the remark of a member of the New York Catholic Conference, namely ‘that his church probably ranks second only to the United States Government in total annual purchase.’ 

Another statement, made by a nationally syndicated Catholic priest, perhaps is even more telling. ‘The Catholic church,’ he said, ‘must be the biggest corporation in the United States. We have a branch office in every neighborhood. Our assets and real estate holdings must exceed those of Standard Oil, A.T.&T., and U.S. Steel combined. And our roster of dues-paying members must be second only to the tax rolls of the United States Government.’” (...)

“The Catholic church, once all her assets have been put together, is the most formidable stockbroker in the world. The Vatican, independently of each successive pope, has been increasingly orientated towards the U.S. The Wall Street Journal said that the Vatican’s financial deals in the U.S. alone were so big that very often it sold or bought gold in lots of a million or more dollars at one time.” (...)

“The Vatican’s treasure of solid gold has been estimated by the United Nations World Magazine to amount to several billion dollars. A large bulk of this is stored in gold ingots with the U.S. Federal Reserve Bank, while banks in England and Switzerland hold the rest. 

But this is just a small portion of the wealth of the Vatican, which in the U.S. alone, is greater than that of the five wealthiest giant corporations of the country. When to that is added all the real estate, property, stocks and shares abroad, then the staggering accumulation of the wealth of the Catholic church becomes so formidable as to defy any rational assessment.” (...)


“The Catholic church is the biggest financial power, wealth accumulator and property owner in existence. She is a greater possessor of material riches than any other single institution, corporation, bank, giant trust, government or state of the whole globe. 

The pope, as the visible ruler of this immense amassment of wealth, is consequently the richest individual of the twentieth century. No one can realistically assess how much he is worth in terms of billions of dollars.” (...)

Mr. Manhattan asks one of the most challenging questions regarding the moral conduit of the catholic church:

“Jesus was the poorest of the poor. Roman Catholicism, which claims to be His church, is the richest of the rich, the wealthiest institution on earth. (…) How come, that such an institution, ruling in the name of this same itinerant preacher, whose want was such that he had not even a pillow upon which to rest his head, is now so top-heavy with riches that she can rival - indeed, that she can put to shame - the combined might of the most redoubtable financial trusts, of the most potent industrial super-giants, and of the most prosperous global corporation of the world?”

I would love to hear the pope answering this question.

I have no interest in their wealth from a personal perspective, but I am outraged of their corruption as a member of the human species. Their wealth is so big that they could create sustainable social programs to end famine on Earth; they have the power and the means to oppose wars; they have the financial resources to create an Eco-friendly planet -- the biblical heaven on Earth.

But how could they be willing to invest in “green technology” when they have huge investments in oil and gas cars manufacturers? In fact, the Iraqi and Afghanistan wars perfectly suit their financial investments. 

In conclusion, religion is financially and morally corrupt.

Priests from all over the planet, please open your minds and hearts, and stop indoctrinating your followers! Stop singing about fairytales and start facing the true challenges that lay ahead of us. Confront your superiors and start preaching the TRUTH.

What is your religion, Alexander?

I have been asked this question many times. I was born a christian, but I have no religion -- though I am a spiritual person. I would never knowingly harm another human being or any living creature on Earth. I am, hopefully, becoming a better human being with each passing day. 

I am bringing my small contribution to the human species almost every single day, knowing that only together we will achieve a positive future for mankind and for our beautiful planet.

Mostly, I am following my path towards the purest spirituality and, hopefully, I will be able to achieve it someday. I don’t have leaders and I don’t want to become one. I am not following anyone and I don’t want to be followed myself. 

You can achieve your highest good and the highest good of others by finding your true path. Follow your heart and you will walk it by tomorrow.

  1. Amen Brother!

    I too was born into christianity. I was even named after the former Polish pope. My grandmother (Dad's side) listens to religious radio stations in Poland every day praying along with the radio signal. She prays in the morning, she prays at night, she goes to church at least once a week. All her life has been devoted to her faith. YET she will be the first person to call my mother horrible names in anger over the past (parents are divorced).

    Ironic isn't it? An entire life spent devoted to a Christian church that CLEARLY hasn't taught her how to be a True Christian.

    I have debated the whole issue of Religion for many years of my life. In the end, I completely abandoned it... AND THEN I FOUND "GOD"! Where did I find "Him/Her"? Mostly in Quantum Physics. There is a unified field of intelligent consciousness that unites everything in the universe. We come from IT and we return to IT. Hmmm sounds oddly "Religious" doesn't it? That's because it is TRUTH. Science has proven a divine source exists, so where's the story running on MSM TV? Wishful thinking. I, like you Alexander, understand that you must lead by example and cannot force your views or beliefs on others. They will naturally resist any "foreign" ideas that contradict their own belief structures. And that's completely fine. They're the type of people that prefer to FOLLOW a belief rather than explore and CREATE their own.

    For a long time I thought that these followers were doomed and will be the catalyst to the world's dark turn into despair. BUT then I remembered that they are followers! And they will naturally follow ANYTHING that is of NOTICEABLE size. So the more the REST OF US wake up and Live in LIGHT and LOVE, they will EVENTUALLY FOLLOW the LIGHT. Like a moth to a flame.

    Thank you, Alexander, for ALL of your WORK for the rest of US. Things are getting really exiting and the SHIFT is getting "louder" for the masses to hear.

    LOVE&LIGHT TO ALL!!!

  3. Hi, Alex.

    I agree with "Anonymous" on the fact that people are "followers". A fairly good example is "Mob Justice". If a thief is caught in public red-handed, the "mob" instantly want to punish the thief. When one person beats the thief, the rest "follow". It's like monkey see, monkey do kind of thing.

    God or no god, alien intervention is evident through out all the ages, and different cultures have different stories all of them pointing to the sky literally and no one can deny that. And as far as Christianity goes, it is the world's worst religions to date.

    Decades of black deeds with violent measures of control brought upon the simple minded people, by means of fear, torture and submission with a word called "heresy" coined by the catholic church, led to the cleansing of the so called "witches" that questioned religion with logic and expected rational explanation. A fact is that people back then were "free thinkers" and not poisoned with fluoride like us! No one new its existence back then!

    A notable figure in history is the Italian astronomer Galileo Galilee, accused of heresy. A man of science, he concluded that the sun is the center of the galaxy. Earth, according to the catholic church was the center of the galaxy. But, Galileo was spared as his idea was later accepted by the catholic church. During that period a wave of genocides in the name of god took place under the guidance from catholic church that was of tsunamic proportions. People of all ages irrespective of their physical state were burned alive at the stake for being free thinkers!

    After a considerable amount of fear was brought upon the people, the "Acceptance of Christ" took shape and the people started "following" the Christian religion. But now Christianity is "polished" like a old shoe is polished to hide the creases and no one wants to speak about it and even if someone speaks about the ugly acts performed by the church in the name of god, the answer is " Oh, but we humans were uncivilized back then!"

    The bible is an interesting book that tells us about alien contact, quarantine measures, disease control, blood sacrifices and genocide! If we have a God vs Satan list, God is the ultimate commander of destruction, genocide and massacre that even Satan cannot measure upto!

    Search the internet for God vs Satan and you will see that God scores the maximum number of killings, a staggering 25 billion and Satan scores a minimum of 10! The bible gives you an approximate amount, but genocide is genocide doesn't matter if it is God or Satan. The Catholic church scores 2nd place for the genocides committed during the black ages. Even here Satan is a loser!

    Those in power can control the media and show a false path, a fake identity, but they cannot control our inner learning self.

    Remember we are evolving to a higher understanding like never before and this is a fact that people are realizing day by day!

    Once enlightened, we tend to look at things differently, comprehend things in a different way. And as Jesus says in the bible, "the truth shall set you free", we are free because we chose to stop following the herd and have started to understand the world in a different way.

    We are out of the crowd because we are able to think free and accept what is really true, while a lot of our brothers and sisters are still in the crowd "following" the same old path going in circles , still under the control of a power thirsty religion called Christianity!

    I really believe that one day our brothers and sisters will surely stop following the herd and look at us. That day is not far and even "they" know it.

  4. Religion is bunk. All of it. It sure is handy to believe in a greater power when things go wrong for you in life. I believe in Darwin, Dawkins, gravity and friends. Religion attracts the weak and the needy and predates on their insecurities. Doubtless some genuine people fall prey to its charms, but in the end we are animals with a highly evolved brain. I recommend we all use it to read about the truth, called science.

  6. You only have to add all the wealth of the RC, Protestant churches and all of Islam to see that the world empire of Reigion is mind-bogglingly rich in every way. But not in God's way. Read REV: 17 & 18 to see how she will perish for it.

  7. "what is your religion"?

    Except it be for the following statement i am one with you, for i believe i am !NOW! a spiritual being having a human experience. ALL Thanks and Praise Be Unto Our Father and GOD!

    And that statement: "I am bringing my small contribution to the human species almost every single day, knowing that only together we will achieve a positive future for mankind and for our beautiful planet."

    Sadly )-; TRUTH IS mankind's "imag"ination is progressively destroying Creation(air, water, land, vegetation, creatures) and perverting that which is SPIRIT(Truth, Light, Life, Love, Faith, Grace, Peace, Hope, Mercy, Wisdom, ALL that IS Truly GOOD)!

    And religion leads the multitudes along that "broad way to destruction"!

    For History has proven, and continues to prove, that multiplied BILLIONS have been killed and enslaved*--*in physical chains at times, yet primarily in the chains of strong delusion that are the commandments and doctrines of men*--*in the name of the god(s) of this, or that religion )-;

    So it is, the fruit of death and enslavement are bore of religion's way,
    for life is but a pawn in the wicked game they play!

    And because of pagan catholicism and her harlot christian daughters "The Way of Truth is evil spoken"! (II Peter 2:2)

    Come out from among them and be separate!" (II Corinthians 6:17)

    Not just pagan catholicism and her harlot christian daughters, but all religion, except it be for James 1:27!

    http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2008/10/pure-and-undefiled-religion.html

    And yes! Atheism is a religion as well, for atheists see their version of a god(self-serving) each and every time they view their image(reflection)!

    Truth IS, religion was intended for, and is yet needful for the natural man!

    And natural men, liken unto those natural israelites of the old covenant, are but "disobedient and gainsaying (covetous) people" who would rather have a man than "Our Father and GOD" speak to, and rule over them! (Romans 10:21, Exodus 20:19, l Samuel 8:4-21)

    Such is the way of a religion, a dem'on'ocracy, socialism, etc., for all are worldly systems "imag"ined by mankind as he serves "the father of lies", he who is "the god of this wicked, evil world"!

    http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2012/10/set-your-affection-on-things-above.html

    Mankind's "imag"ination is truly the devil's playground.......

    Yet! while breath IS, HOPE IS!

    For TRUTH IS! Miracles do happen.......

    Father Help! and HE does.......

  8. Talk about followers. I had a psychology professor say we gravitate towards news and information which confirm our own beliefs. It's so true of every poster on here. Some of the quotes in the article are absolute bunk. The Catholic church is not a corporation. Yes it owns land all of the world. Church's don't float in the air, they have to be built on the ground and here's a thought, purchased. Hmmmm. You can be an atheist, I'm ok with that, I have friends who are, but please when you see BS its BS ,no matter what you believe. Don't buy into hook line and sinker like you claim we religious folk do. You're just as guilty if you believe everything in this article. I just don't get it. The Pope is the richest man on earth? Really? yeah, if he sold all the religious art, sold all the churches and schools and kept it for himself. Art is only worth $$ if you sell it. That's true of anything, it's only worth $$ if its liquid. He can't sell any of it, it doesn't belong to him, therefore its virtually worthless. If you claim to be so much more enlightened and intelligent then my poor ignorant self, please act like it. Don't believe everything you read just because you so want it to be true. The pope owns NOTHING! It belongs to the church. He has no kids to pass it onto. OH, and why would the church invest $$? How do you think it helps the poor? It takes MONEY!!! It takes money to run a church, to pay its employees, to run a school, to help buy for the poor. I don't know why I bother. You'll believe what you want to be true and so will I. WE ARE ALL SHEEP

    1. You've missed the point of this article. You can believe in whatever you want to believe, but the Vatican is making $70 billion/year in PROFITS (after all salaries are payed, new investments are made, etc.). They don't pay any taxes and have NEVER been against war. In fact, they support it - as history and present show.

      They talk about LOVE, while 33,000 children die of hunger every single day. Do you see the hypocrisy and evilness? You know how much it's needed for hunger to be eradicated on Earth? Only $30 billion... not even half of the yearly profits of the Catholic church alone.

      Religion is a business, and it has power for as long as they are still able to scare people with dark takes of the afterlife. When their lies will no longer stick, their power will vanish.

      It will be one more step towards FREEDOM.

  9. Amen to all you have said. So, Pope Francis with his pseudo poverty-lifestyle is just a smokescreen to get the masses on his and the Church's side. All his talk about giving to the poor etc. etc., especially where and when he quotes from Matthew Chapters 5-7, is just to prepare the world's people for the soon-coming day when the long-awaited NWO-created Christ will rule the world, its people and all its money - even mine and yours. This Christ is what new testament writers have dubbed the Antichrist! The word for them is not Poverty but Hypocricy.

  10. This was spoken of almost 2000 years ago. "Fallen is Babylon the Great!" Rev. 18:2.
    You all speak as if Catholicism is alone in all of this.
    I know you're all happy as if you've uncovered some great thing, and it's great, no doubt, but it's not the whole enchilada. As well, the article is misleading to say that they are the largest corrupt financial institution on earth. That belongs to that family that's worth 500 Trillion. You know who they are.
    Another incomplete "click bait" article to avert eyes for profit. Next...

  11. Vatican Vaults Dispensed would End World Hunger; God is only Love! So it seems that their Boss is "He Who Shall Not Be Named." Even My Son could do the God Math on that One :)
